Finally I have found time to blog!

My challenge began on Saturday 2nd April when my big shop arrived. These have been our meals for the first week:

Saturday - roast chicken (couldn't fit it in the freezer!), roasties, stuffing, broccoli, spinach and gravy.

Sunday - roast pork, roasties, stuffing, yorkshire pudding, cabbage, carrots and gravy.

Monday - cold pork, boiled potatoes, sweetcorn and baked beans.

Tuesday - breaded cod, chips, peas and sweetcorn.

Wednesday - spag bol.

Thursday - steak pie, roasties, purple sprouting, mixed veg and gravy.

Friday - chicken curry and rice.

Last week (9th April to 15th) we ate homemade and from the freezer but I forgot to write it down and now can't remember which days we had what!!!

On Saturday (16th) I spent all day in the kitchen baking. I made chocolate brownies, madeira cake, rock cakes and dundee cakes. I made huge amounts for the freezer, using up the eggs that had built up. I really enjoyed it and now the freezer is full of goodies for when I am back at work and haven't got time to bake.

Saturday - faggots/mince and onion pie, boiled potatoes, asparagus, purple sprouting, carrots and gravy.

Sunday - roast pork, roasties, stuffing, yorkshire pudding, purple sprouting, carrots, gravy and HM mint sauce.

Alice made this meal and it was delicious!!!

I then spent the whole afternoon ironing.

Today they get to choose what they want for tea, but it will be something out of the freezer.

I've still got lots of food left until I get paid, so the challenge continues ...
